Elementalist : Attunements


While in battle Elementalist has access to four different Elements - Fire, Water, Air and Earth. Attuning to one of these Elements, Elementalist changes his weapon skills depending the weapon he is currently wearing. Moreover, switching to an attunement can modify some slot skills.

  Skill Description
Fire Attunement 10 Attune to fire, gaining heavy damage and burning abilities.
Water Attunement 10 Attune to water, gaining superior support and healing abilities.
Air Attunement 10 Attune to air, gaining heavy damage and control abilities.
Earth Attunement 10 Attune to earth, gaining superior damage-over-time and defensive abilities.

Tempest top

Tempest gets access to Overloads - a profession mechanic that grants additional skills while in each attunement to deliver high-pressure sustained damage, control, and healing to nearby areas. Using the overload causes the attunement to go on recharge.

  Skill Description
Overload Fire 4 20 Overload. Unleash your flames, granting might to allies and burning enemies. Finishing the cast creates a tornado that continues to grant might and burn foes. Using this skill causes the attunement to have a longer recharge.
Overload Water 4 20 Overload. Create a surge of accumulated water magic, healing and cleansing allies. When the cast ends, heal the area and apply regeneration. Using this skill causes the attunement to have a longer recharge.
Overload Air 4 20 Overload. Use your air magic to summon a nimbus that repeatedly strikes nearby enemies. When this ability is complete, imbue your allies with electricity and create a lingering static region that strikes enemies at the same interval. Using this skill causes the attunement to have a longer recharge.
Overload Earth 4 20 Overload. Ride your stored earth magic around, granting protection to other allies you move over and crippling enemies, then deliver a final immobilizing blast of power to the area, leaving behind a dust cyclone that delivers the same effects as the overload. Using this skill causes the attunement to have a longer recharge.

Weaver top

Weaver can be attuned to two elements at once. When attuning to a new element, the current main-hand attunement switches to the off hand, while the new attunement is placed on the main hand. You can attune to the same element twice in a row. The main-hand attunement specifies skills in slots 1 and 2, the off-hand attunement specifies slots 4 and 5, and the skill in slot 3 depends on the combination of both attunements. Being attuned to two different elements results in a corresponding Dual Attack in slot 3, regardless of the attunements' order.
